The southern Canadian Rockies are a breathtaking spectacle shouldering the Continental Divide and boundary of British Columbia and Alberta, Canada. Topped with glaciers and surrounded by emerald lakes and rivers, their beauty is beyond pictures or words.

For those who built the Canadian Pacific, these mountains were the ultimate obstacle to overcome. The route they chose was the difficult ascent over Kicking Horse Pass. Known to railroaders as "The Big Hill", Canadian Pacific trains have been climbing this grade since 1884 and it is still an amazing sight today!

Beginning at Field, BC, we follow the Laggan Sub east to Exshaw, Alberta. Watch trains battle the 2.2% grade above the Kicking Horse River, pass through the incredible Spiral Tunnels, and sprint along the bank of the scenic Bow River. See 10,000 foot stack trains, unit grain, potash, and mixed manifests. We also catch The Rocky Mountaineer, Canada's premiere passenger train. There's nothing like mountain railroading in the Canadian Rockies!

This program was shot in June, September, and October 2014.

This is the second "Canadian" train video that Aaron Bentson and 7idea Production have made. I have the Blu-ray version of this video. One word...WOW! 7idea always knows how to balance the trains with the scenery. I liked the additional information that Aaron provided about the Spiral Tunnels, the Trans-Canadian Highway, the old right-of-way and the hotels that Canadian Pacific built. This made it much more than a train video. It is a work of art. I love watching it over and over. Thanks again, Aaron and your 7idea producitions, for making this great video.

Another 5 star production by 7Idea. The scenery is awesome and I guess I never realized the quality of the narration part of his videos. Not only the research, but the amount and quality of his voice. I have purchased every video he has produced and I treasure each one. Viewing them several times...always looking forward to the next production.
